Dermol 200 is a moisturising shower emollient which can be used instead of regular soap. Dermol moisturises and protects the skin against irritating conditions such as eczema and dermatitis. Unlike some soaps, Dermol 200 doesn't remove your body’s natural oils. This means that your skin can retain its moisture and stop from drying out.
Aside from maintaining your skins moisture levels, Dermol 200 acts as an antiseptic, helping to keep scaly and itchy skin at bay. Dermol 200 can be used either when washing or applied to the skin directly as a dry moisturiser.
Acting as both an antimicrobial and an emollient, Dermol 200 can be easily integrated into your normal washing routine. And it’s even safe for the kids to use. Dermol can be used as both a treatment and a preventative measure for skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis.
Dermol 200 treats your skin conditions with two active ingredients:
- Benzalkonium Chloride
- Chlorhexidine Dihydrochloride.
These two ingredients are antimicrobials and work by attacking any harmful bacteria on your skin which is causing it to inflame and itch.
Dermol 200 shower emollient also includes two moisturising agents:
- Liquid Paraffin
- Isopropyl Myristate
These two ingredients work to soften and moisturise the skin. They do this by helping to protect your body's natural moisture, promoting a healthier skin and preventing it from drying out.
Apply directly to the skin or while washing as often as required
